More than forty years ago, the State of Vermont and Jay Wulfson's Vermont Railway joined forces to buy and revitalize key components of the moribund Rutland Railroad. Today, Vermont Rail System is a dynamic organization boasting six affiliates: the Vermont Railway, Clarendon & Pittsford Railroad, Green Mountain Railroad, Washington County Railroad (Montpelier & Barre Division), Washington County Railroad (Connecticut River Division), and the New York & Ogdensburg Railroad.
Separate chapters track the history of each affiliate, including relevant antecedent roads. The final chapter details the combined activities of the railroads through 2005.
